Since my son Dylan’s passion is basketball, we’ve been watching the March Madness tournament.
One of the exciting components of this particular tournament is that each game will be your last — if you lose. So, every team and each player is playing to their utmost ability.
It’s been amazing watching these players battle to the end with last-second game-winning shots.
This made me think about my own life and how I attack each day.
How much more productive and powerful would we be if we took on March Madness mentality? For us to get up each morning with the ambition to conquer the day because if we don’t, it could be our last — to know losing is not an option.
I will be the hardest worker today. I’ll get to work 30 minutes earlier and stay 30 minutes later.
I’ll let everyone close to me know how much I love and appreciate them.
All my friends can count on me to be trustworthy and dependable.
My children will have an interacting father helping with homework, shooting hoops in the driveway, getting snow cones and giving lots of hugs.
Those of you in relationships, be creative and adventurous to show appreciation and love. It could be as simple as going grocery shopping together.
Today will not see shortcuts. I will be in full force to smash through negative barriers, leaping over life’s obstacles to cross the finish line setting new records.
Just know, you better get out of my way because I’m not going around you.
Since I’m a champion today, I’ll take it to a new level tomorrow and conquer this March Madness tournament of life.
